almost correct, its actually if you are within the walls surrounding chester city, and the scotsman is outside the walls. it does have to be after dark and with a crossbow though! stems from roman times. its a damn good law though!

In italy you can be fined if you don't take your receipt with you after leaving a restaraunt.

This law has actually been enforced in the 1990's. The reason for the law is that restaraunts were evading taxes by under-reporting income. The assumption is that by leaving your receipt behind you are aiding and abbetting tax-evasion.

.....It is illegal to have sex on the steps of Birmingham City Cathedral before the hours of 9pm!!!

You may not raise pigs on Israeli soil.

however, to go around this law, people raise their pigs on platforms raised above the ground, so technically it's not israeli soil.

In Texas:

It is illegal to commit a crime against another person without giving the intended victim a 24 hour notice.

It's also illegal to take more than 3 sips of beer at a time while standing.

Also when two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each is required to come to a full stop, and neither may proceed until the other has gone.

We have so many other odd ones it is ridiculous.

Performing marriages, funerals, baptisisms, last rites and absolving the sins for HoPers for-- not very long actually.

There's a few odd ones I know of from Oklahoma, some are city code and not state law though.

In Duncan it's illegal to wear camoflauge in city limits, and every vehicle must be pulled by at least two oxen.

In Tulsa you have to have a licened engineer present before you can open a coke bottle.

Anywhere in Oklahoma it's illegal for dogs to be gatherd in groups of three or more without a license, and to eat someone elses hamburger.

Not sure if it's been covered but in England it's illegal for a Taxi driver to denie service for any reason if the destination is within a mile.

People using this law would make taxi driving interesting I rekon.. Espesho on late night runs on Fridays. ^^b
